OUR GAME FISH DEFINITION : Is intended to recognize and include the Commercial Fishing Industry, but also assure an individuals interest and ability to catch and/or retain a fish (Striped Bass), for Personal Consumption, when Recreational Fishing, Operating a Business or Charter Operation. AS AN ASSOCIATION : Our Mission, We need to decide what fish species, ( Striped Bass ) should qualify as a Game Fish within the 7 States of : ( MA,RI,NY,DE,MD,VA,NC ). Then collectively collaborate, under the USB-2-GFA, in order to form a written : ( Definition and/or State Definition ) of a Game Fish. STEP TWO : Writing A Bill & Having It Presented, "The Definition of Game Fish" must then be written into Legislation in the form of a "New Game Fish Bill" for each state. We then present the "Bill" to be introduced, recognized, then enacted upon, by the States Governing and Regulating Authority's, in order to become a Legally Recognized Game Fish Law in each state. PS : The USB-2-GFA would also like to recognize the Mariculture and/or Aquaculture Farmers who are now in the process of raising All Fish including Striped Bass for retail sale. These companies will have to distinguish themselves and their Final Product as farm raised, and not a Game Fish, in a way recognized by All The Respective Organizations Involved.
